Believe OBX makes four different manifolds for the Zetec.

- Long tube race header
- SVT style header
- Ramhorn style manifold
- Turbo manifold

That's awesome! I wonder if there's a sound/performance difference between the SVT style and the long tube race header?

"That, detective, is the right question." :P I wish I had more money to play around with and to find out.

Probably not too much, but the SVT style allows you to run a few different catalyst options, the long tube does not. That's where you can get into much different sounds.

Hmm.. I wonder if anyone on here is running the SVT style.. Since the OEM header is getting harder and harder to find, this might be a good alternative. My current one is bent at the 2-1 portion, right before the flange. Pot holes in California are not friendly.
